Template talk:Anti-consumerism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I added the book Evasion to the "Popular Works" section. It's a great book by a self-described freeganist hobo who travels the country dumpster-diving, hitchhiking, shoplifting, and train-hopping. I am in the process of improving the article on the book itself, which kind of sucks at the moment. It contains a lot of copied and pasted (albeit public domain) text from crimethinc.com. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SuperEditor (talkcontribs) 18:41, 25 November 2010 (UTC)


The PM developed by Inglehart does not reject consumption, it simply reflects a set of values that FOLLOW in the wake of materialism. It has nothing to do with Naomi Klein or the rejection of capitalism. I am removing it from the template and the template from the Post-Materialism page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:25, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Who made this thing?[edit]

Can anyone tell me why productivism belongs in the anti-consumerism template? That makes no sense to me. I'm thinking it had to have been a vandal. Jiminezwaldorf (talk) 14:48, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Wondering the same thing about why social democracy is in the template. --Sharangir (talk) 04:13, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
This is Wikipedia and anyone can change anything. I was thinking that the words "consumerism" and "anti-consumerism" often have the same meaning. Blue Rasberry (talk) 00:33, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Template image[edit]

Thank you for selecting a wonderful image to accompany this template. I feel that it accurately portrays the sentiment. Gobonobo T C 05:32, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
